yeah, macca is a real blow. but it means that teague and wiggins and maybe even thorn have to step up. i read that DiMattina might be pre-season training with us...not sure why...i dont think he is anything good.
Backwell is also back for calrton as well. remember him?? used to wear number 6 a few years back. small dude, blonde long hair, abit of a surfy if you ask me
i think Carlton will do a lot better. the players they picked up are not crappy players. Scotland and Clarke were regulars before getting those naggling injuries. Stevens obviously will help a lot.
what concerns me is our defence. Thorntan is a gun player, but Livingston is a Materazzi type player, you never know what you are gonna get
Norman is good, but pagan doesnt seem to have much confidence in him. i read that Pagan might use Whitnall or Kouta at CHB. Lance would be good i reakon, because he can set up play well and reds the ball well also. thats if he can get fit, fatso needs Jenny Craig something shocking.
and with lance at CHB setting up play, it could mean Lappin returning to the forward line again bagging 40 goals a season, which we have lacked recently. BUT, with macca gone, Lappin is really the only experienced player to go back there.
so, its gonna be interesting for Carlton supportes. Its gonna be hard, but exciting at the same time.
the players that left, bar Macca, all had to go....simple as that.
what really concerns me is our ruck. French is okay sometimes, but he aint great. Our money maker, opps, i mean Angwin, is young and looks good, but its still not good enough i reakon. so in the draft, i'm thinking we would go for that.
